Vitali Klitschko, the mayor of the Ukrainian capital Kyiv, wasted no words responding to Vladimir Putinâ€™s claim that the invading Russian army wasnâ€™t targeting civilians.
Klitschko, a former world heavyweight boxing champion, on Wednesday was walking past a residential building destroyed by Russian forces when 7 News Sydney reporter Chris Reason asked him what he thought of Putinâ€™s claim of â€œonly targeting military targets.â€
â€œBullshit,â€ the mayor snapped.
â€œSorry,â€ Klitschko immediately added, before pointing at the bombarded apartment building and asking: â€œWhere is military target? This building is military target?â€
Klitschko delivered â€œknockout sound bites that get straight to the point,â€ tweeted Reason.
